This is not The Haight that most visitors come to see - that infamous Hippie Central of the '60's that's known as Upper Haight and lies to the west of this area. Lower Haight is the eastern section and along Haight Street, roughly between Divisadero and Webster, is a great stretch of early19th-century architecture, restaurants, bars and a handful of shops. I understand that the young folks will find some lively nightlife here. Anyway, do include this in rambles to Alamo Square and Upper Haight as it's definitely worth the gander.

Here's a map of the general Haight district with eateries, pubs and whatnot highlighted (Lower Haight is on the right side):


Below is another site with some links to more info on some of those places.

Address: Haight Street between Webster and Divisadero
Directions: I took the F-line trolley to Church Street and just walked the 4-5 blocks north, cutting west at Duboce and up Steiner. It's another 4 blocks straight north to Alamo Square.
